May the Force be with You
Fledgling studio Dramatic Labs has announced that its graphic adventure game Star Trek: Resurgence will no longer meet its 2022 release date — The space opera adaptation will now launch in April 2023 on PlayStation, PC, and Xbox platforms.
“Production has been advancing steadily all summer, but we have made the difficult decision to move our release date out of 2022 in order to give the game a final coat of polish, and create a truly immersive Star Trek experience,” writes the developer in a statement posted to Twitter.
“Our love and admiration for Star Trek is instrumental to this decision. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished so far, and this continues to be a passion project for everyone here. We are incredibly grateful — and excited — to be able to work within a universe that means so much to so many. We can’t wait for you to see it all and look forward to taking you on an adventure unlike any Star Trek game that’s come before.”
Originally revealed at The Game Awards just last year, Star Trek: Resurgence is a narrative experience in the vein of Telltale Games’ litany of choice-based adventure games. Studio Dramatic Labs is itself made up of former Telltale Games employees, and thus one can likely expect the people politics, dramatic tension, and moral decision-making of games such as The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, and Batman: The Telltale Series.
